HOW TO AVOID SCALP BUILD UP

One of the most annoying hair conundrums: you spend good money on all the latest hair tools and styling products to ensure your quiff is perfectly coiffed, yet an itchy scalp and flakes can ruin your day.

Though you may not have considered that your scalp might need some TLC, it’s absolutely true that your scalp is the source of many hair woes and is definitely a place worth your attention - especially if you’re loading it with daily use of styling products. The thing is, it might be your styling products causing all the trouble.

If you’ve noticed flakes close to the roots of your hair, it might not be dandruff that we’re dealing with. Scalp build-up’s usually the result of styling products, along with oils, dust and dirt on the scalp which can clog hair follicles and cause products to stick to strands and layer on the scalp.

If you suffer from an itchy or flaky scalp in the first place, you might have noticed build up from a daily use of styling products can exacerbate both.The reality is, you are not alone! 1 in 2 male users had or have scalp issues caused by styling products. And 3 out of 5 actually stop or decrease their usage of styling products when their scalps get irritation.

Switch to Head & Shoulders Men Advanced series infused with Charcoal Shampoo and massage it into your scalp for a little longer than you’d do with your ordinary shampoo to leave your scalp refreshed.
